I am part of a global academic movement that seeks to broaden Western psychological understanding of our social worlds. I am currently editing several special issues on decolonial psychology with an international team of scholars, which will be published in 2021.


I completed my PhD in Psychology at the department of Psychological and Behavioural Sciences, London School of Economics and Political Science in 2018. I studied the social psychology of racial, and ethnic identity constructions, negotiations, and intergroup relations in multicultural societies that have race-based social policies. I explored the influence of multidimensional contexts on these constructions, drawing from the fields of sociology, political science, and human geography. Research for the PhD was carried out in Malaysia, Singapore, and the UK.


My other research interests include perspective taking among individuals, the socio-cultural determinants of health related behaviour as well as safety culture within public health systems.
